That should make it obvious why I’m really looking forward to Saturday, Oct. 11’s 6th Annual Barktoberfest in Franklin.
One of the fest’s big draws is the Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest — a contest that gives both people and their pets a chance to show off their best costumes and compete for more than $3,000 in prizes. But it’s the Pet Adoption Fair component that I’m always the most energized for. Almost a dozen local shelters and rescue groups — including MACC, Bonaparte’s Retreat, Agape Animal Rescue and others — will be taking part, so if you’re looking for a new family member (or a worthy organization to support), there’s a great chance you’ll find what you’re looking for at Barktoberfest.
The event runs from noon to 5 at Animalia Health + Wellness (1973 New Hwy 96 W., Franklin), a bonus for us, since our own Realtor/Partner Jen Bua lives right there in Westhaven and is hugely passionate about and connected to her community. (If you’re thinking about moving to Westhaven or just want to know more, she’s definitely the person to turn to.)
Attendance for you (and family and friends you’re going along with) is totally free; if you want to take part in the Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest, you’ll just need to hand over $10 per entry. Last year’s event brought out 3,000-some-odd neighbors and dogs — are we gonna see you there this year?
